Overview

This volume summarizes the main findings of the NATO Science for Peace Project SfP-980468 Harmonization of Seismic Hazard and Risk Reduction in Countries Influenced by Vrancea Earthquakes. It addresses the problems of regional seismic hazard assessment, its application to the Vrancea zone that influences the territories of Romania, Bulgaria, and Moldova, and provides guidelines for seismic risk reduction in the target countries.

The contributions focus on key problems of the Vrancea area and related strong ground motion. The book covers a range of topics: from hazard assessment to site effects and microzonation, from protection of historical buildings to the study of the dynamic properties of the soft soils and paleoseismology.

Researchers, practitioners, experts, and students will benefit from reading this book and having it as a reference in the years to come.
